The Archeon is a Battleship class ship designed specifically for sieging Starbases.

   

Description

The Archeon is a battleship class ship that specializes in destroying the hull of large, slow targets such as enemy planets and Starbases. It can be very slow and is unable to defend itself from small ships, especially ones that can outmaneuver its Railgun volleys.

Interior

When entering the Archeon, one will find a neon door on a panel with "Bridge" on it and some bedrooms. If one touches the neon door, they will be teleported to the bridge of the Archeon, with the captain's seat that has a neon panel in front of it, as well as several crew seats.

Advantages

  • One of the best Battleships for sieges when accounting for turret firepower.
  • Its 6 Railguns and dual large cannons will quickly destroy hull.
  • Decent health for a ship of its class.
  • Performs very well in fleets.

Disadvantages

  • Vulnerable when alone, it is unable to defend itself from most ships.
  • Cannot perform well in ship to ship combat scenarios.
  • Railguns will almost always miss on anything smaller than a battleship unless you get really close.
  • Second slowest battleship along with the Sovereign.
  • No effective shield damage at long range.
  • Large blindspot behind the ship.

Strategy

  • A useful tip with the Archeon is to approach it at a 45-degree angle from below the base. This will allow you to usually fire upon the base, destroying most of its hull quickly, without taking damage yourself. Caution is advised when using this tactic, as it does not always work. Again, it is best used if you have a fleet with you in the same location.
  • The Archeon is a vulnerable ship and can easily be destroyed on its own, hence there should always be an escort. Only take it out during sieges and play smart. Don't let yourself become a target.
  • It is best used in fleets, as it is very vulnerable when alone, due to the poor accuracy of Railguns. It should typically not be used to fight other ships, as its railguns will have a hard time getting through shields, and their low accuracy makes PvP against small ships nearly impossible.
  • Having such a high hull damage output it is great for finishing off Dreadnoughts, both to help or counter a siege.
  • When paired with a shield breaker, you can decimate anything large and slow.
  • Try to stay close to ships like the Ampharos, since they can get rid of small ships for you.

Trivia

  • The Archeon is similar in design to the Destroyer Argosy, from it's appearance to hull-destroyer.
  • Some people call this a "Mini-Ridgebreaker" because both have bad turret placement and are hull destroyers and siege ships.
  • The Archeon has "Acheion" spelled on Its upper right engine in Japanese, which is "Archeon" mistranslated.
  • Received a remodel in .61g. The older model is seen below.
